Anti-Aging Korean Tips
The general skincare sentiment in the western world is that once you reach a certain age mark, it's time to change your products over to intensive anti-aging and firming creams. In contrast, Korea doesn't emphasise that transition, more so an overall skincare maintenance from an early age.
The fight against age actually starts super early to ensure the appearance of longer lasting skin.
| 1 | Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer
You've have probably come across our posts about how oils moisturizing your face the best. Well, balms are now our new favourite due to all the moisturizing benefits of oils packed in an emollient base to completely hydrate and revitalize the skin.
This Boscia Sake Balm is really unique because it has 'sake' properties that can reverse dullness and dryness of the skin. The texture already feels very hydrating and we love how the skin looks brighter and healthier only after a few uses. It's enriched with the finest grade of sake to improve your skins texture and for healthy looking complexion. When it comes to anti-aging, this product is a must have as it also helps reduce the look of wrinkles.
| 2 | Boosting Collagen BB Cream
On the day where you have to be looking your best, a light BB cream would never go a miss. This Dr. Jart BB is amazing because it's infused with white gold to stimulate anti-aging and supports your skin's natural collagen. Collagen is what keeps your face looking young and bouncy. This BB cream also has SPF 45 sun protectant and includes brightening properties. It has natural looking coverage and it's great for evening out your skintone. It's super lightweight so it won't even feel like you have anything on, and keeps my skin super smooth.
| 3 | Use SPF BB Cream
One of the best advice we could give for skincare is to wear sunscreen in your early 20's. This is because sun damage can happen and not show up until years later so it's vital that you take preventative measures now. Korean women really pride themselves on milky smooth skin, but I know many of us would prefer a healthy bronzed glow. This Amorepacific Colour Control Cushion Compact is an easy way to touch up your bb cream, and stay protected from the sun.
| 4 | Use A Sleeping Mask
This water sleeping mask is inconspicuous enough to use anywhere and everywhere. Masks are a great way to give your skin a boost of moisture and nutrients every few days just to maintain a healthy glow. This Dr. Jart Water-Max Sleeping Mask is quickly absorbing and has tons of moisture and nutrients that nourish your skin as you get your important beauty sleep. It's infused with essential oils so the fragrance also helps to promote a deep sleep, and we all know how important beauty sleep is to looking younger and more refreshed.
| 5 | Use Sheet Masks
Many of the beauty team here religiously use a sheet mask every other night. Sheet masks are amazing for instantly revitalising your skin and not to mention it's super popular in Korea. There's probably a sheet mask for any skin issue you can think of, but we're loving this Too Cool For School Egg Cream Sheet Mask. When you remove the sheet mask for it's packaging you can already tell that it's going to be incredibly moisturizing. It's infused with egg whites and egg yolk extract so it's extremely hydrating and leaves the skin immediately radiant. It also helps firm the skin for a younger-looking appearance, which we're all for. Just leave the mask for 10-20 minutes and gently peel it off to reveal luminous and radiant skin.

And last but not least, anti-aging is also a lifestyle!
Drink a lot of water and eat healthy!
Take a leaf out of the Korean lifestyle. Korean consider fruits as dessert, which means they're consuming a lot less sugar and sweets. Making small changes can really making a difference to your lifestyle. Opting for green tea rather than soda or coffee is always a plus.
Take care of yourself is the first step towards a beautiful you!
